  • 3D ultrasound detection of the spine

    As a graduate student of the University K.U.Leuven (Belgium), I am
    working on a project to detect the human spine. The spine of a person
    lying on a bed on his side should be recorded in 3D (translation and
    torsion). The measurement should be performed in a non-invasive way and
    quickly. Radiography is excluded because of the damaging effect on
    human health and because it is slow.
    Maybe the spine can be imaged by ultrasound. The problem here is to
    know the position of the spine in a world co├Ârdinate system. If you
    know a solution of this problem by ultrasoud, I would appreciate to hear
    more from you.
    All other techniques able to image the spine (for example : external
    fixation with goniometers) are also very welcome.
    Hoping you will respond soon,
